Extra Curricula - Sun Smart

St Mary’s is a recognised Sun Safe School and has a No Hat/No Play policy. Children are expected to wear hats for all outdoor activities sport and play. Parents are encouraged to remind their children to apply sunscreen before school or supply a small tube or roll-on sunscreen for their children to apply prior to participation in outside activities. The school supplies sunscreen on occasions of prolonged exposure to the sun such as swimming and athletics carnivals and all day excursions. Parents are asked to notify the school if they are aware that their child has any allergies to commonly available sunscreens. Portable shade shelters are used for extra protection for the children at the swimming and athletics carnival.
